Gospel artiste, Kebualemang Hove, who grabbed the limelight with her debut album Kudzoyashe in 2016, is set to inject more life into her music with the forthcoming album titled Eternal Worship Oblation scheduled for 7 April.
This time, Hove is promising a mixed bag album that features different beats that range from jazzy sound, kwaito and soft rock.
“This time we tried to differentiate and upgrade from general taste of gospel music, therefore blending my instrumental beats with jazz, soft rock, classic music and kwaito but maintaining my gospel lyrics” she said.
“It is my desire to honour and serve God through music. I believe I am a bearer of God’s good news hence my choice for gospel music.”
Hove’s music took off in 2016 when she released her debut album Kudzoyashe which featured Mathias Mhere and Alvern Zhou of the Lutheran Church choir
Her debut album which featured tracks that preached God’s grace, mercy and love — received favourable airplay on several local radio stations.
“I was so overwhelmed by the responses I received in my debut album, this has been my best motivation to work a bit more. I have just sampled some of the tracks from this album and the responses are very promising”,she said.
“Like the Samaritan woman, when you receive some good news you can’t keep it to yourself. When you have a good news for hope, healing, restoration and salvation, you just want to everyone else to benefit from it” she added
Hove said her passion for music dates back to her childhood where the influence of her prayerful grandmother rubbed onto her as prayer sessions were held every evening and all children had to sing in the family choir from the Lutheran hymn book.
The upcoming album carries 9-tracks such as Jesu Nhare Yedu and Shumba yaJudah to mention only a few.
